I had a busy day yesterday with a group of 4 lovely people in my garden studio. I usually only have 3 people at a time but as they were all friends they didn't mind it being 'cosy'!
We were doing the Small Panel Full Day workshop & a couple of the participants already had some great design ideas when they arrived.
Working in copper & brass they all had a go at lots of techniques including, embossing, saw piercing, hammering & texturing, heating & soldering (due to the time restrictions I usually complete most of the soldering for people but I do like them to have a go too!).
A fun day was had by all & some really great work was produced. It's really interesting to see how different people approach the project, some like to carefully plan everything out on paper before hand while others (more like me!) like to be hands on & get straight on with working with the materials.
These are the finished pieces....
I am running another panel workshop this Friday & then taking bookings for the rest of the year. Please contact me if you would like to have a go too!
